Default Drive-In Massacre (1977)

Stu Segall's DRIVE-IN MASSACRE (1977) is coming to U.S. DVD & Blu later this year from Severin Films.

Original Trailer:

The title was originally verified by a screening at their recent 10th Anniversary part in Los Angeles.

And further verified by a throwaway line in today's Rue Morgue article:

Essentially, we soft-premiered [BAG BOY LOVER BOY] as part of our 10th-anniversary triple feature at [Hollywood’s] Egyptian Theatre this past weekend, with DRIVE-IN MASSACRE [another new Severin acquisition] and BEYOND THE DARKNESS, which we’ve already announced.”!Exclusiv...f2ee8bc224e534

Hoping Arrow will be announcing it next week...

Co-writer / actor John Goff was at Severin's screening and participated in a Q&A, so I imagine that'll be on the disc.

The Sleazy ‘70s Slasher Classic

Restored & Remastered For The First Time Ever!

It was one of the few true slasher movies to pre-date HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13th, and remains the closest you’ll ever come to an actual seedy ‘70s drive-in experience: It’s a hot summer night in Southern California and the local passion pit is packed with patrons. But when a sword-wielding psycho begins carving up customers, it’ll unspool a grubby cavalcade of creepy carnies, peeping perverts, graphic decapitations and an ending you have to see/hear to believe. John F. Goff (THE FOG), Bruce Kimball (LOVE CAMP 7) and co-writer George ‘Buck’ Flower (BACK TO THE FUTURE) star in this nasty slab of ‘70s sleaze directed by adult film & episodic television veteran Stu Segall (INSATIABLE), now packed with all-new Special Features and restored from the original camera negative recently discovered in the ruins of the Sky View Drive-In near Oxnard!

Special Features:

Audio Commentary with Director Stu Segall
Drive-In Days: Interview with Star/Co-Writer John F. Goff
Norm Sheridan Recalls Drive-In Massacre
Making the Massacre: Interview with Director Stu Segall
Theatrical Trailer
Reverse Cover Art

Cover Art B:

This justly-forgotten flick is all downhill after the admittedly memorable opening sequence, but it's hard to resist a signed copy! I placed a bundle order with the second volume of Kung-Fu Trailers of Fury for $39.50 shipped. The latter would likely have been $2 cheaper at DD during one of their sales, but I don't mind paying an additional two clams to get it right away (do Severin ship pre-orders early, like other labels?), especially when the first volume was such a blast. I would have loved a big-box VHS replica of the original art (pictured in the link above), as they've done with a few other releases.

Curious about this film, from the description it sounds like it would be fun. Is it a straight up slasher affair? What are some slashers you would compare it to?

Even though I own a copy of 88's release I still find myself giddy with anticipation for this. Severin

Can't believe I'm willing to double dip on a release like Drive-in Massacre

I just ordered Drive-In Massacre by using a 20% coupon at Barnes & Noble.

Barnes & Noble seems like a rather quaint place to purchase such cinematic savagery, but the price was right.

This just came in the mail today and I can't wait to watch it. I might wait until my order from the Arrow sale arrives (which should be any day now) to pair it with Driller Killer, like this old DVD I kept putting off picking up:

They were both blind buys, but I've heard a lot of good buzz (and bad buzz too, tbh) over the years. I'm stoked to finally be able to judge them for myself. I hear they're both grimy and venture into WTF territory, which has my curiosity piqued. The fact that Drive-In Massacre is also a proto-slasher also has me very intrigued. I'll try to report back when I finally give it a spin!

The ending of this movie f*cked me up big time. Wow. I felt cheated for a second, then I realized it was actually one of the greatest horror endings of all time. If only I had seen this at an actual drive-in for the first time. Man, that had to be a hair-raising experience!

I regret never giving it a spin on that random DVD I had back in the day.

This movie was like 5 minutes slasher film and the rest of the running time was like a buddy cop/detective movie. I found it amusing. Seemed like it was trying to ape The Town that Dreaded Sundown.
